    Anyone have a link for disassembling and reassembling the convertible top mechanism for an A-body? I need to take mine apart to blast, clean and paint. I'm just not sure whether I'm getting in over my head or not.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas/Happy New Year.

    Some of it unbolts, but a lot of it is riveted together. Even if you were to take the bows off, the side pieces are pretty intricate. Personally, I would soda blast it assembled myself and not take it apart.

    Clean and paint it in the car. Way too many adjustments to take it all apart.
